J. Powell Graduation Collage

Congratulation to the Class of 2021!

Take pride in how far you’ve come. Have faith in how far you can go. But don’t forget to enjoy the journey. —Michael Josephson

This year is such a huge shift from last year, considering the pandemic. Graduates get the satisfaction of experiencing the culmination of all their hard work, and many are commemorating their accomplishments with graduation portraits.

I am so proud to present JáNae Powell, a graduate of the University of Cincinnati Law School! It was such an honor to provide an experience that allowed us to document these moments for her and her family.

Scroll down to enjoy a select few from her session.


The person who gets the farthest is generally the one who is willing to do and dare. The sure-thing boat never gets far from shore. – Dale Carnegie

A new chapter, a new horizon...

“Instead of letting your hardships and failures discourage or exhaust you, let them inspire you. Let them make you even hungrier to succeed.” ― Michelle Obama

Life teaches us that every experience is a learning lesson and that obstacles build tenacity. Many of the mistakes I've made have become stepping stones to do something better, greater, become stronger, be more resilient. This new chapter is just the beginning to conquering uncharted territories and using your gifts to glorify the master Creator who made us all. My prayer is that each person I am blessed to connect with will be a light, a catalyst, a well-woven tapestry whose life, in turn, blesses others.

All my best,

Angenise Rawls
